From one throwback to another! So the MTV Movie Awards aired last week. Far from an Oscar or Golden Globe indicator, everyone knows these awards as being off the wall with crazy categories like “Best WTF moment,” which went to Ken Jeong from The Hangover and “Best Villian,” picked up by Tom Felton’s awesomely evil Draco Malfoy from Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. In fact, there have only been two occasions in the MTV Movie Award’s Best Movie 18 year history that their pick has matched the Academy’s choice for Best Picture: in 2004 for the Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King and in 1998 for Titanic. Not super surprising when you consider some other classic MTV best movie winners are Napoleon Dynamite, There’s Something About Mary and last year’s Twilight.
Speaking of Twilight, if you missed it, the 2nd movie in the Twilight Saga, New Moon, pretty much cleaned up on the awards front like it did last year and probably like the next movie, Eclipse, will next year!
Which brings us to my favorite part of the show: the new clips from Eclipse (out on June 30th) and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (part 1 out on November 30th and part 2 out on July 15th 2011)! Embedded below for your viewing pleasure, both clips courtesy of YouTube!
